    I DON'T KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE HAS SEEN THEIR GANDER SEEMINGLY TRYING TO MATE WITH A WATER HYDRANT? [​IMG] [or some other thing other than another goose] Since his mate has been sitting for the past month, my Gideon has decided to relieve himself by rubbing against the water hydrant next to his pool! Afterwards, he honks loudly just like he does after mating with his girl...and it's soooooo funny! [​IMG]
